NEWSBRIEF: Malik Brown's Short Atlanta LGBTQ History
Malik Brown, the City of Atlanta's Director of LGBTQ+ Affairs lays out the City's heritage for Out Magazine.
Malik Brown was appointed by Mayor Lance-Bottoms to represent LGBTQ issues before the City. While this piece is a bit boosterish for Brown and the City, it is a nice recap of LGBTQ history.
"For me, and so many outsiders like me, Atlanta is a safe space in a region that is often unsafe for us. Like every other city, it has had its own reckoning with the LGBTQ+ community, but the progress that my hometown has achieved is remarkable. We have earned our title as the LGBTQ+ capital of the South and proved that our impact knows no bounds. One thing I know for sure is that Atlanta influences everything."
